The Leica M4 is a legendary rangefinder camera produced from 1966 – 1972 b Ernst Leitz GmbH. in Germany.
Based on the Leica M2, the Leica M4 has some new features like 4 frames in the viewfinder for the four focal lengths 35/50/90/135mm. For the first time, the rewind knob was replaced by a diagonally mounted crank and a new type of quick-loading system was used to enable film changes even under difficult conditions without removing a spool. Furthermore, the shape of the rapid advance lever was changed.
A total of almost 60,000 cameras were produced, of which about 9,000 were painted black and later also chrome-plated black. The rest of the production was delivered with a light chrome finish.
